News about OCD related events

South West volunteers needed during May

Volunteers needed for awareness raising events to be held in partnership with South West Trains during May 2015.

South West trains recognise the importance of championing mental health and, as such, have asked OCD-UK, along with other mental health charities to attend several events they are running for Mental health Awareness Week (11th – 17th May 2015).

We need volunteer support for these events (click read more for the dates). We will be talking to the general public about OCD, challenging any stigmatic attitudes we experience and offering information, advice and guidance where necessary. We will be gifting freebies to incentivise our conversations and fundraising too, so there are lots of different ways you can get involved. Volunteers must be able to travel and over 16. So if you can attend one, or more of these events please do get in touch!

Workshop: Difficult to treat? Not anymore! Cognitive therapy for OCD

This one-day workshop in Nottingham hosted by Canadian OCD specialist, Dr Adam Radomsky will be of interest to any mental health professional working with patients affected by Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a heterogeneous disorder; common symptoms include washing and checking behaviour, as well as primary obsessions (i.e., repugnant, unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images and impulses). There has been a surge in recent research on each of these forms of OCD, with publications often solidly grounded in a variety of cognitively-based models. Although these models differ to some extent in their explanation of obsessional and compulsive phenomena, they share a number of important features that are consistent with broad cognitive principles. We will begin with a review of the theoretical and empirical work conducted on the psychopathology and treatment of different manifestations of OCD. The workshop will continue with practical instruction on the cognitive-behavioural assessment and treatment of a variety of forms of the disorder, with particular emphasis on obsessions, compulsive checking, and contamination-related OCD (mental contamination). A new way of conceptualizing and treating contamination fear will be highlighted, along with the new construct of mental contamination. The focus on checking will feature elements from our new cognitively-based approach. The section of the workshop devoted to the treatment of obsessions will feature a case of post-partum obsessions, highlighting our ability to treat this important manifestation of the problem. Although OCD remains a serious and often debilitating disorder, our ability to substantially improve the lives of those suffering from the problem has dramatically increased in recent years. This workshop will capitalize on these recent improvements through the emphasis of new cognitively-based treatment strategies for this challenging disorder.
